Tweco's Fusion Pro 450 water-cooled MIG gunClick image to enlarge

Tweco, an ESAB brand, has introduced the Fusion Pro 450 water cooled MIG gun.

The Fusion Pro 450 is designed for running wires from 8.9 to 1.58 mm (0.035- to 1/16-in.) diameter in medium- to heavy-duty industrial fabrication, maintenance and repair applications. Using mixed gas, the Fusion Pro 450 is rated at 450 amps at 100 per cent duty cycle; with CO2 shielding gas, it is rated at 500 amps at 100 per cent duty cycle.

The Fusion Pro 450 uses easy to service front end consumables, similar to those found on the Tweco Supra 450 water-cooled MIG gun, but it also features an insulated torch neck, slip on nozzle and ergonomic handle with rubber soft areas that make the torch more comfortable to handle. Guns come with 3.05- or 4.57-m (10- or 15-ft.) cables and are available with standard Tweco back end connections, Euro style connections or connects for other leading wire feeder brands.

For higher amperage needs or running 2.4 mm (3/32 in.) diameter wires, Tweco offers its Standard 600-amp water cooled MIG gun, which has a 100 per cent duty cycle at 600 amps with CO2 shielding gas.

Trim flap discs boost stock removal, service life

Polifan PSF Z-TRIM flap discs feature composite backing that can be trimmed to extend service life and reduce time consuming disc changes on steel and stainless steel (INOX) applications.


Pferd has introduced the Polifan PSF Z-TRIM flap disc. These versatile new universal flap discs have a lightweight composite backing that can be trimmed to extend service life, enhance surface finish and reduce time consuming disc changes. The composite backer and flap arrangement help reduce vibration and noise levels. Produced with a higher density of zirconia coated material (Zirconia alumina Z) than standard PSF flap discs, these discs provide long service life, an improved surface finish, and a soft, cushioned, contamination-free grinding effect in applications ranging from surface grinding, weld grinding, blending, chamfering, and deburring on steel and stainless steel (INOX).

Their premium zirconia self-sharpening abrasive grain produces high stock removal rates throughout the life of the disc, along with a long service life. In addition, the high-density flap arrangement, with an increased amount of coated material vs. conventional flap arrangement, facilitates reduced vibration and noise levels, along with flexible grinding action and superior results on irregular shapes. 

The Polifan PSF Z-TRIM trimmable flap discs provide superior stock removal, service life and surface finish

The PSF Z-TRIM flap discs perform on all power outputs, though high-powered angle grinders will achieve optimal results. They are available in 4 ½ in. and 5 in. diameter with either a 7/8 in. plain arbor hole, or a 5/8-11 thread for threaded spindles, in grit sizes of 40, 60, and 80. The 5/8-11 thread quick-change version is made with a zinc hub..
